EWA record crushing win

England Women's Academy recorded an emphatic 221-run victory over Chigwell School Boys, thanks to hundreds from openers Georgia Adams and Tash Miles.

The pair put on 252 for the first wicket, with scores of 128 and 117 respectively, as England made 301 for two from 45 overs.

And Chigwell's response failed to ever gain momentum, as EWA skittled them out for 79.

Opener H Blogg carried his bat with 31 runs, but his team-mates failed to offer much resistance.

Alice Davidson-Richards made the first breakthrough, bowling T Turner for 12, before Freya Davies got in the act with a wicket of her own.

Cecily Scutt then took the first of her two scalps, before Steph Butler ran through Chigwell with 4-26, with Paige Scholfield picking up two wickets in between.

Earlier, Adams and Miles both faced 124 balls during their stay, with the former hitting 18 fours and the latter 14.

When a wicket finally arrived, it was Adams who perished in the 39th over, but Miles hung around until the final over with Jess Watson, who made 22.

Sophie Luff then hit one from four balls faced to help EWA to a total that was never threatened.
